LabelRodin’s belief in the expressive power of every aspect of human anatomy led to some of his most radical experiments, like this sculpture of two right hands. The sculptor published a book on the Gothic cathedrals of France in 1914 and renamed this piece, formerly known as The Arch of Alliance, after the rib vaulting found in Gothic churches.
